One man’s journey to London to launch a startup, armed with just a suitcase and dream!
The Rackspace Startup Programme is delighted to be supporting entrepreneur Chris Bradley as he takes his startup, Publicate, from the bedroom in Wales to London with no office, no accommodation and no money, trying to run the business from his suitcase.
In episode 5 we join Chris and newly announced co-founder Anastasia Emmanuel at SXSW, where Publicate is trying to make a name for itself by talking to as many influencers as possible. There’s an interview with Robert Scoble lined up, a live video panel, and plenty of networking to be done – not to mention trying to get a press release out in sync with UK hours when they’re in a completely different timezone. And hey, what would SXSW be like without a little partying?
